Located in the Town of Milan in an area of estates, fine homes and farms, this property has a rich agricultural history of cattle ranching and later as a pheasant farm. The acreage is replete with character and offers ideal farm soils; ponds and wetlands; miles of improved trails for hiking and cross-country sking as well as hardwood forests.

The second floor is a gracious and light-filled home with an open layout that is enhanced by a vaulted ceiling and cupola. The kitchen is done with stainless appliances and cherry cabinetry with an island bar that is open to the main living area.Flooring throughout is reclaimed heart pine. There is an upscale, tiled bath and a bedroom finished with custom-made barn doors that open to reveal storage and a stackable washer/dryer.
The lower level is partially finished, heated and currently serves as storage and workshop. There are plans available to convert it into full-time living space.
HOMESITE WITH MAJESTIC VIEWS
A proposed homesite which affords total privacy and the best vistas on the property has been carefully cleared. This site is accessed via a 3/4 mile driveway with shale underbed, 100-year flood bridge and drainage in place. There is buried electric at the site. Lastly, there is a small vintage cabin moved there to enjoy a leisurely evening sunset.
SITE IMPROVEMENTS & ACREAGE
A state-of-the-art geothermal system powered by roof panels on the carriage barn and a field-based grid discretely sited nearby are in place to power lighting and HVAC. There is a large utility shed for equipment and several vintage outbuildings on the property.
Milan Hill offers approximately 30 acres that are cleared both for a future homesite and pasture. In addition, there is approximately 240 acres of woods and 15 acres of ponds, and wetlands. The acreage is in two Dutchess Land Conservancy easements (103 acres and 42 acres) that have been carefully placed to allow for thoughtful development. All conservation land has also been placed in Forestry Property Management (NY 480-A) which reduces tax liabilities.
